By | Posted November 21st, 2011

There is a statistic floating around that the average employee loses 2 hours out of every 8-hour workday on time-wasting activities. (Facebook, anyone?) Here at MetroFax, we know that time is of the essence, and we’re here to help you complete tasks in a quick and efficient manner. Take a look at a few other online tools we found that are proven to increase productivity and efficiency. It’s time to work smarter, not harder!

Dropbox, Inc.™: Say goodbye to your tsunami of emails with Dropbox: a cloud-based free service that lets you easily share and back up photos, docs, videos, and more. When you install Dropbox on your computer you get a Dropbox folder, which synchronizes with the cloud as soon as you add a file. Anything you put into the Dropbox folder on one computer will appear on all the other linked Dropbox folders on other computers or mobile devices. Email no more, simply drop and share!

MailChimp®: MailChimp is the hub for all things email marketing. Here you can manage your email lists, see all of your past and current email marketing campaigns, and easily import or add contacts. You can also segment your lists easily to send different messages to different categories of subscribers based on where they live, their interests and other distinguishing factors.

Hootsuite Media Inc.™: The power of social media is undeniable, but staying on top of all your online accounts at once can be a tad daunting. Luckily, HootSuite exists to organize and manage all of your social media streams on one simple screen. Respond directly to fans and followers, retweet or “like” posts, and schedule future tweets and posts to go out at a specific time. Upgrading to Hootsuite Pro for a small monthly fee provides even more features, ease and efficiency! Read more here.
